PRICE ONE CENT
To "President Cleveland is Close
ly Guarded by the Authorities.
Enough Is Known, However, That This
Country May Get Into Troublo
With Spain Uvor tho Cuban (1Var TUo
Spaniards in, Havana Insult Americans
Without Hesitation un All Occasions
ft Tho President Must Act Hoon.
Washington, Nov. 13. Thoro is
moro solicitude over Cuban affairs
among high government officials than
they are willing to admit. Fitzhugh
Leo's roport to President Clovcland is
guarded closely, but an impression
prevails that enough has bocu told to
render it probable that this adminis
tration may get into sorlous troublo
with Spain before its termination. It
is known that Qen. Leo has informed
his superiors in ofllco that Spaniards in
Cuba havo an intense hatred for Amer
icans and American interests, and they
do not hesitate to say 'so most insult
ingly in public places in Havana.
Whllo Gen. Leo is believed, from
an impartial and military stand
point, to loan toward tho Span
ish troops in tho Island, it is
said ho has laid befoto this govern
ment also facts to show that American
intorcsts in Cuba will shortly bo ruined
completely unless Cleveland takes de
cisive action. t
A rumpus is likely to bo taiscd whan
President Cleveland sends his annual
messago to congress. In the event of
war with Spain tho United States has
nothing to fear. Our siandlng army of
25,000 men is perhaps hotter than any
other of its slzo in tho world. Wo have
17 flrst-class war vessels on tho Atlan
tic coast, and tho total strength of
our navy is 103 vessels. Tho organized
militia of this country is not far from
300,000 men, and reports to the war
department are that wo could readily
put 2,000,000 able-bodied men in tho
field if" necessary. Tho many militia
schools are constantly turning out
young men who could bo appointed
officers o volunteer companies. Thero
aro enough men in tho regular army
to draw on for officers in the event of
trouble. Spain or any other nation
would have a tough job in tackling
Uncle Sam. Spain has, at last ac
counts, moro than 300,000 men in Cuba.
In a war with a foreign power she
could probably easily niuster 1,500,000
men undor pressing circumstances.

Washington, Nov. 18. Tho relations
of tills country with tho government
at Madrid havo been further strained
by tho action of tho Spanish officials
at Havana. For somo tlmo tho latter
havo been exorcising a disagreeable
authority, presumably under instruc
tions from Madrid, and havo caused
much annoyance to 'shipmasters.
Marinors havo been subjected to all
sorts of fines and taxes, undor tho
gulso of violating harbor regulations.
Somo of tho levies havo been without
justice and based on no other reason
than that it was possible to extort this
rovenuo from American sources. For
a timo, it appears, no protest was
advanced by individuals, but tho mat
ter has grown so palpable in its in
justice and boldness that tho circum
stances wero at last roportod to the
stato department by returning mari
ners. Secretary Olnoy at once instructed
Minister Taylor at Madrid to file a pro
test against tho action of tho Ilavana
officials, together1 with tho demand
that tho system should bo discontinued

Our Diplomatic Relations With
Spain Alroady Strained.
Spaniards Showing a Bittor Feeling
Toward Anything American.
NotM Hunt t Foreign Ministers Uneovored
by Mtntstor Taylor, Who Exacted Its
Withdrawal Information lmX
wanded ul Southern Itoads.
Washington, Nov. 13. From a num
ber of sources ,tho rumor relating to
tho probability of war with Spain
aro confirmed. It is believed that
tho stato department' possesses
definite information from Minis
ter Taylor rogarding tho strong
and ungovernable enmity which is at
tached to things American in tho
Spanish mind. It Is said that these
advices havo oven gono so far
as to sound a noto of warning
that an outbreak of violence
might bo expected in various turbulent
quartors. This information will not
surprise thoso who recall tho uncon
trollable anger which burst forth in
Spanish cities and towns on tho oc
casion of tho house resolutions sym
pathizing with tho Cuban course.
This ill feeling is not secrot and hid
den; It finds vent in music halls and
tho Madrid cafes, it is said, whenever
the name America is pronounced or
reference to this country is mado.
Among other things, a story has
roached this city, traceable to tho
British embassy, it is said, which
shows that Spanish relations with this
country aro not over-cordial, oven in
diplomatic and official quartors.
Tho secretary of state Is known to
havo dctailod a clerk to remain at the
stato department each night until
midnight to receive and translate
from tho diplomatic code any messages
which may como in, and it is presumed
that something intcicstlug is looked
for fiom Minister Taylor. It is said at
the department that Mr. Olney left
word that lany messago from Madrid
should bo brought to him without de
lay. A dinner was given somo weeks ago
in Madrid, tho guests including the
various ministers to Spam, among
them Minister Taylor and the British
minister at Madrid. Iho entertain
ment was enlivened by tho British
minister divulging to Minister Taylor
a noto which ho had that day recolvod
from tho foreign office in Madrid, a note
similar, it turned out, to communica
tions sent to other ministers, with the
glaring exception of Mr. Taylor. After
tho dinner Minister Taylor procured a
copy of tho note, which in substance
presented an inquiry as to tho attitude
which would bo assumed by England
and other governments in the event of
war between Spain and tho United
States. So bold and pointed a query
exerted much comment among tho dip
lomats at Madrid. That it found nc
sympathetic response i3 shown by the
fact that Minister Taylor early
learned of tho Inquiry, and was able to
go, as ho did, without delay, to tho
Spanish foreign office, and enter a pro
test against the action. Tho note, up
on tho demand of Minister Taylor, was
recalled, and tho incident probably
ended with that surrender, although
the implied insult can not bo removed.
Washington-, Nov. 13. Officials of
tho war department deny without
qualification tho story published by a
Chicago paper Friday to tho effect that
tho war department had called on rail
road companies for rates for the trans
portation of troops and war materials
from tho west to gulf ports.
Somo six weeks ago tho de
partment, in tho ordinary course
of routine business, eallpd on tho
trans -continental roads for bids

Florida and California. This call is
tho only basis for tho absolutely un
justifiable and alarming publication in
tho Chicago newspaper. ,

Favoring n Graded Income Tax Adopted
by tho Knights of Labor.
Rocuesteh, N. Y., Nov. 13. Among
tho papers prcsontcd to tho distribu

which would apply to all incomes and
be laid with a per cent, that should
increaso as tho amount of tho

in their power to havo such a tax en
acted by congress and failing they
will use their inllucnco to havo tho tax
